Touching on the Unday
The Unday’s members share a strong family-like bond and a rich history of musical conspiracy that dates back over 10 years of various jam-band and bar-rock incarnations. In 2011, the collaborative brain-child known as The Unday was born with a more serious intent to pursue originally inspired compositions that push the boundaries of genre. Their music carves out a unique journey, exploring themes of impermanence, gleaned not only by the name, “The Unday,” but by the surprising twists and turns within and between songs. This rock quartet exhibits overtones of classic rock, blues, and jazz, as well as deeply rooted classical and Spanish influences.
D is basically the band’s own Chuck Norris. She’s a devastating red-head in heels and a fancy dress, with a flower in her hair and a voice to knock you to the floor. Her second weapon of choice is the viola. Her masterful viola shredding has been said to contain so much raw power, it should come with a warning label: side effects may include the perfect combination of chills, fever and goose bumps. D also hosts karaoke at various hotspots around town and, although she doesn’t always sing “Sexy Back,” ...when she does, she keeps it classy. She’s had her hands in music for most of her life, from her involvement in orchestra and various jam bands to a family band, in which she sang and played guitar. Also, she plays a killer bass, dabbles in piano and is considering picking up the didgeridoo. To top it off, she bakes unbelievable muffins and once accidentally led a Christmas parade. Who does that? D is considered a mythical creature by her friends, band mates, and fans, who haven’t actually been able to confirm whether she’s a real human... or.... in the words of P Diddy... a unicorn. To sum up this dynamic, well-versed rock goddess, she’s a force to be reckoned with, on and off the stage.

Voted by band mates as “most likely to be searched in an airport,” C-Love is a self-
discerning shadow lurker. Dark, mysterious and broodingly philosophical, he’s most famously known as The Unday’s “Tall Sexy Bowl’o’noodles,” or “TSB.” And yes... “Bowl’o’noodles” IS one word. He’s the quiet type, until you get to know him, at which point you’ll learn that he’s a formidable conversationalist and a virtual treasure trove of random, useful factoids. He actually performed as a human calculator in his 3rd grade talent show and his aptitude for math clearly translates to his ingenuity as a composer. Though his hands are almost always full, between writing music, mastering technology, and performing maintenance on his house, he’s the kind of guy who will bend space and time to be there for a loved one. He’s also considered the band’s own knight in shining armor and personal Macgyver, because he can fix just about anything with a toilet paper roll, some tin foil, and a piece of gum. He’s a tried and true jack-of-all-trades and when all is said and done, he’s not just a cunningly original and brilliantly provocative guitarist; he’s also just a really handy guy to have around in general... except in airports.

Known as “The Machine” for his unmatched stubbornness and high endurance threshold, Shaun doesn’t sleep; he reboots. He listens to everything from death metal to smooth jazz while cuddling his lap dog. He devours knowledge and refers to vegetables as “animal food.” He also enjoys the challenge and strategy involved in a good chess match, a hard-won game of pool, or a long, unnecessarily drawn-out debate between old friends. He can take apart your computer, put it back together, and write some elaborate code by dinnertime. No really... sit down and relax. He’ll make you dinner too... and it will be delicious. Clocks and metronomes keep time by Shaun, but don’t ask him what time the next show is; he’s “just the bass player.” He’s a genuine friend with a devilish grin, renowned prankster extraordinaire, and the life of any party. Though he picked up the bass specifically for The Unday, he’s a classically trained musician with a strong background in guitar and saxophone, and a pinch of piano to boot. Mostly, he’s an ingenious composer and an all-around spot-on musician with dimples to kill. Chaotic Neutral. -1 Wisdom. +3 Charisma.
Bill is known as “The Pun-isher” for his exhaustive use of puns. He’s an unapologetic lover of the English language, who actually still owns a good, old-fashioned, hardback copy of the dictionary. Shockingly, he expects you to own one too... and he’ll advise you to use it. He’s ever the gentleman and charmer in his stylish suit and golf cap. He’s also an avid reader and a cinema aficionado. He’s not only credited amongst his friends as the long-standing, undisputed Mario Kart champion, he’s also an esteemed master of “the force,” who has single-handedly achieved crock-pot Nirvana. A humanitarian at heart, he disregards all those signs that blatantly advise not to “feed the animals,” and frequently invites his band mates over for a generous and hearty meal. Better yet, if you put a set of drumsticks in his hands, he’ll conjure up some seriously savory beats for you. He’s a rogue percussionist and the man who lovingly breathes life, heart, and soul into The Unday’s playful rhythms. He has also gained +3 to Dexterity thanks to his equally adventurous two-year old daughter, who is prophesied to join the band as a second drummer within the next few years.
